senator john kerry who is very familiar with senator kerry actually played mitt romney in his debate prep. so they spent a lot of quality time together recently. the thing is everyone has known that senator kerry had an eye on the role of being the secretary of state to replace hillary clinton. his name was mentioned back in 2008 for that role as president obama considered who to put in for the cabinet. i think right now some of the conventional wisdom says that u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice even though she's embattled over her comments on benghazi, she may be the favorite for that role. so you've got some trial balloons floating around here. we know there are a couple deputies to the secretary of defense who are also being considered for the role. we'll have to wait and see exactly how it plays out. >> all right, brianna keilar, you have a full plate. >> yes. >> thank you very much. >> next hour we'll get reaction to general allen now being tangled in this scandal. nic paton walsh will join us with perspective there. >> and tom fuentes from the fbi will join us to talk about all

as an example when they used gay marriage to actually beat john kerry putting ballot initiatives on there at the same time as the kerry-bush campaign? >> hi, cenk. i think since 2004 we've had a lot of conversations. people in the lgbt community has talked to their neighbors their coworkers, their family members and basically telling people who they are telling people their life story. it was much harder to ignore them and much harder to demonize them as well. so once members of the lgbt community start sharing who they are with members of the community, with their state with their country you change hearts and minds. when i talk to people about my relationship with my husband people look at me, they smile. they see we have a nice relationship, and they start opening up to the reality and the possibility that two men and two women can engage in committed legal relationships. >> cenk: evan, is this a water shed election where we now see finally the tide turning? >> absolutely. as you already said, we were four-for-four yesterday. in three of those states it was the first time that
of the most powerful voices of criticism of president obama when it comes to foreign policy. john kerry, same thing, but no place in politics, no elective office that mitt romney holds. i don't see where he easily fits back into the party. >> he can become a cable tv host. one of those networks out there. what do you think? you think he has -- a lot of the republican party today, he's gone, over, history. it sounded like a valedictory. he was sort of going to recede, did it twice. tried, lost and there were a lot of people who recorded him as a transitional figure even when he was nominee of the party. so i think he'll go back to business, maybe to bayne capital, who knows? i don't see politics in his future. >> what about paul ryan? will he just pick up where he left off? or do you see him broaden out? >> he has time. listen, he has something that is very hard for a house member to get and that is nationwide recognition. he is also a bonafide brainiac with budget things. you may not agree with what he likes to do with the budget, but he understand. so there is still a place for him there. he
demographic. i don't believe for one minute that john kerry would have had the same appeal in the way coming in two successful elections, that obama had. i agree that there are probably some big issues that need to be dealt with in a different way with certain portions of the electorate. i believe we had a fourth candidate. new sod jolt benisons analysis of the election. soft underbelly was the people did not trust him. they did not know what you believe it. conservatives did not know what to believe. you had a guy running for president and it was not until the tail and that the conservatives came home hard for romney as romney and not just being against obama. politics is a lot more dynamic. remember, two years ago, we had a huge republican wave. as you look of the way at least congressional districts are locked bin for the foreseeable future, you have a lot of bleeding out of redistricting that happened, but you have a lot of members who were in republican districts where they are locked in where they are pretty white and locked in and they have quadra is back at home that favor them. some

man problem. >> they do have that. john kerry in 2004 got only 2% of the white vote than president obama did this last election. the democrats have had a problem with white male voters. but they built a coalition because the minorities built up. but the republicans have to remember f you're running in the primary, there's a thing called google. if you say things about minority, we google it and find it. stand up to the extremist voice or be defined by them. it's your choice. >> ana, you were talking about people who had drunk the kool-aid and how disappointed they were. do you think it is -- the gop and i guess the leaders and people like karl rove, do you think that they are just that out of touch, that they don't know what's going on in america? >> no. look, we just have to take back the asylum from the inmates. and karl rove really understands the hispanic vote. he was in large part responsible and one of the architects of president bush 43 winning part of the hispanic vote which is why he won the presidency. but i agree. i saw the discussion from your two previous guests. i agr
